Over 25 Years of Experience Fighting for You
Fraud is the term used for wilfully misrepresenting yourself. Whether that is by impersonating someone else or disclosing only part of the truth, you can face serious consequences for a conviction. In the case of federal charges, this can occur by lying about your net worth, tax liability, or identity when applying for federal aid. If you were charged, get help from award-winning Dallas federal fraud attorney Peter Barrett.
The Reality of Fraud
Most of us have, at some point, been victims of fraud. It can happen when someone asks for your personal information and you give it to them in good faith. In those cases, the act is intentional. In other situations, criminal fraud might simply be a mistake of fact that needs to be examined more closely.
If fraud involves a federal agency, such as the Postal Service, the Internal Revenue Service, or Social Security, the charges can become much more severe and will require skillful criminal defense if you are to protect your freedom.
Types of federal fraud include:
- Identity theft
- Mail fraud
- Insurance fraud
- Securities fraud
- Wire fraud
- Bankruptcy fraud
- Tax evasion
